This large-scale oil-on-canvas painting of Perry's Victory on Lake Erie by William Henry Powell was the first painting commissioned by the Ohio General Assembly for the Ohio Statehouse. Perry's Victory depicts the Americans fighting the British at the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812. Central to the composition, which is filled with action and movement, Commodore Olivard Hazard Perry is seen standing in a dingy, mid-battle, changing ships. In spite of this set-back, Perry won the battle and announced, "We have met the enemy and they are ours."
